YouTuber Says Her 80kg Pet Pig Is 'Like A Son' To Her

YouTuber Says Her 80kg Pet Pig Is 'Like A Son' To Her

A YouTuber says her 80kg pet pig is 'like a son' to her. You can watch the big boy having his bath time here:

Simone Partner, from Bath, UK, grew up on a farm, and as such is used to having animals around her - though that doesn't actually make having a great big pig in your kitchen any less unusual.

Believe it or not, Milo is actually a miniature pig, who she picked up as a piglet for £500 ($652). He sleeps in his own little house in the back garden, but spends much of his days lounging around on the sofa - or in their springer spaniel's bed.

Simone - who goes by the name Eltoria on her YouTube channel, which has 216,000 subscribers - said Milo lives the good life.

The 28-year-old said: "He is tidy and completely house-trained, other than when he loves to bring in straw into the house from his outside bedding, which I always have to clean up after him.

"He has his own 'pig-proof' house in the back garden where he sleeps at night but most days, he loves sleeping on the sofa, snuggled up to the pillows, his mermaid blanket and squeaky toys.

"Milo is a part of the family and he is like a son to us."

Indeed, she's found Milo to be a huge help during the pandemic.

She said: "Milo is actually a very comforting and soothing animal to have around, so if anything, he's kept me very chilled during lockdown.

"I may regret to admit this but when I start feeling a little stressed, I lay down next to him on his rug and just give him a huge cuddle. He often likes to raise his nose towards him so I can give him a kiss on the snout, ha!"

Lockdown has probably been easier for Milo than most of us though, as he's not such a fan of variety or spontaneity.

Simone said: "Milo can get really stroppy if his morning routine is messed up.

"The routine consists of, being let out of bed, sprinting to his 'toilet space' in the garden, having his breakfast, drinking out of the dog's water bowl, and then taking his morning nap on his rug.

"If this does not happen in the following sequence, he is not happy."

But despite his hissy fits, tendency to bring straw into the house and capacity to produce vast amounts of excrement, Simone said he makes an excellent pet; just make sure you do your research before you pick up a piggy of your own.

She said: "Pigs make amazing pets as they are really intelligent, full of personality and extremely responsive towards humans.

"What people don't realise is that there isn't such thing as a 'micro pig' or 'tea-cup' pig. Milo is actually a 'miniature pig' and is smaller than a 'regular pig', even though by looking at him you won't think so.

"Micro pigs just don't exist and it is naïve to buy a pig, thinking it is going to stay tiny, and then complain when the pig grows."
